Although exercise and healthy nutrition are the keys to losing belly fat, some people may need the extra help from dietary supplements to enhance fat loss.
There are various reason why it is harder to lose excess pounds, such as:
- cravings and hunger
- stress or emotional eating
Choosing the right belly fat burners can help you to lose the bulge a little easier. Here are 2 of the best belly fat burners…
1. Alpha Lipoic Acid
This is potent antioxidant that not only fight free radical damage in the body, but also regenerate other antioxidants and strengthen their effects. Studies have uncovered the many promising health benefits of alpha lipoic acid. It can potentially be used for treating diabetes and diabetic neuropathy, improving ageing skin, slowing progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases and protecting against heart disease.
Insulin resistance is one of the causes of excess belly fat. Since alpha lipoic acid improves insulin sensitivity, it has been shown to promote weight and belly fat loss.
It is important to look for R-ALA, as this is the natural and effective form of alpha lipoic acid. Avoid S-ALA as this the synthetic form.
Check out Life Extension Super Lipoic Acid, a bio-enhanced active form of R-ALA for greater absorption.
2. EGCG Green Tea Extract
Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) is a powerful antioxidant found in abundance in green tea. It has been widely studied for its numerous health benefits and anti-obesity effects.
EGCG green tea extract can promote weight loss by:
- increasing thermogenesis
- increasing fat oxidation,
- reducing dietary fat absorption,
- regulating insulin
Human studies have shown that ECGC green tea extract can reduce belly fat and body weight.
When choosing a green tea extract supplement, look for the EGCG content on the product label. It should be stated in % or mg. This tells you how much EGCG is in the green tea extract and whether it is of high/low potency.
